Protect their future

If you’ve been thinking about setting up a trust for a family member who has a learning disability (and/or autism), contact us today, to explore your options. You may want to:

  • safeguard their benefits and entitlements
  • ensure legal or financial responsibility for your family member is not placed on family or friends
  • make allowances for unforeseen family circumstances that could prevent other family members taking on the trust — like poor health or premature death
  • appoint a trustee who is well informed about learning disability rights and the needs of people with a learning disability
  • choose a permanent, professional body who is experienced in trust law.
